Exiled Writers Ink

Last night I was invited to play a few songs on the mbira at this month’s edition of Exiled Writers Ink hosted at the Poetry Cafe in Covent Garden. It was a lovely evening of African poetry with contributors from Ethiopia, Congo and Zimbabwe to name but a few. I played one of my songs, Dineo, as well as two Shona folk songs from Zimbabwe - Zvichapera and Amai naBaba.
